While the male and female facial forms are not all that different, the male rhinoplasty procedure definitely has its own set of considerations. Not every cosmetic surgeon knows how to, properly, perform this procedure, providing men with the masculine results that they are looking for out of the surgery. Dr. Kevin Sadati, however, is a board certified facial plastic surgeon based out of Newport Beach who specializes in the male rhinoplasty.
When an Orange County male patient is disappointed after his primary rhinoplasty procedure, he may be heading to Dr. Sadati’s office for a revision. The goal of the revision will be to, not only, provide the man with the results he was looking for in the first place, but, also, to fix any structural or functional damage that occurred as a result of the primary procedure.
When working with men, Dr. Sadati keeps a couple of different considerations in mind. Many men do not realize that there is a minimum age requirement for this procedure. Male patients must be at least 17 years old before they can have a nose job completed. The male nose is not completely developed or fully mature until about this point, and the surgery cannot be completed until development has finished. If the surgery were done before this point, the nose would continue to develop. The aesthetic results of the surgery would be skewed, and functional damage could occur. This would also result in a complex revision procedure.
As an expert who works with many different types of patients, Dr. Sadati recognizes that male patients will have different wants and needs than female patients. Though the average woman looking into this procedure, will be asking for a softer, smaller, more delicate nose, a man who wants to improve the appearance of his nose does not necessarily want to remove its masculine features. Most male patients simply want a better looking nose than before —, but they still want their nose to remain a symbol of their strength and masculinity.
Prior to beginning the surgery, Dr. Sadati will meet with the patient at a free consultation appointment. At that appointment, a physical exam as well as an emotional health exam will be performed. Once these exams are complete and the patient has been deemed fit for surgery, the patient and the surgeon will have a discussion about what to expect from the procedure. Some men might feel shy about their desire to have cosmetic surgery, but it should be noted that thousands of men head to the operating room each year to have plastic surgery done.
